My discharge papers said that bowel movements might be delayed after a surgery, but only up to four days. Definitely take a stool softener if you aren't already, and drink tons of water!

Did ur doctor prescribed u stool softeners? They normally try to get u have a bm before u leave the hospital...but I would probably call ur doctor if u don't have one today
